A Collected Collection: The Discoveries of R.W. Brackley by Jessica Bartram

Jessica Bromley Bartram is now back, with a new array of whimsical and captivating creatures. Since her solo in 2010, "Farther’s Fascinating Freaks," Jessica has been busy envisioning and breathing life into R.W. Brackley: a Victorian sea explorer.

This exhibition includes an original watercolour portrait of R.W. Brackley and original illustrations of the sea creatures she discovered during her adventures. The exhibition will open on February 3rd, but here are some exclusive photos from before the works were mounted.

There is more where these came from: Jessica is also a zealous note-taker and diarist when it comes to documenting her art-making process. Follow the making of this exhibition via her blog here.
